Christian Relief Comes to Central Park

Samaritan’s Purse has sent medical teams to Haiti, Bangladesh, Iraq—and now to New York’s Central Park, where it has set up a field hospital across Fifth Avenue from the affluent Upper East Side. The nonprofit relief organization is providing and funding 68 beds and several dozen personnel to assist Covid-19 patients from Mount Sinai Health System hospitals around the city. The effort will “allow us to expand inpatient and critical care capacity,” according to a statement from Mount Sinai’s chairman of emergency medicine.
